David gifted this sparkling pink diamond ring for her birthday. The decadent ring cost $1.1 million at the time.

Completing the precious gemstone set (because what 15 ring collection wouldn’t have precious stones in it), is this immaculate sapphire ring. There’s something about sapphire that’s so elegant! Maxwell Stone, a leading diamond expert, reports that While Victoria’s first ring is no doubt sensational, it features one of the most modest stones in her collection – particularly when it’s compared to the sapphire engagement ring that she received in 2010. Featuring a 15-20ct high-quality sapphire on a platinum pave band, the ring is likely to be worth a staggering £5,000,000 and is by far her most impressive sparkler.
